There are few things I hate more in this world than a cheater. One of the big reasons men and women cheat is that they don't communicate, and probably never did. They get together thinking the other person will change, or conform to an expectation and when that invariably doesn't happen they go looking for excitement elsewhere.
My wife and I have been married for 6 1/2 years and have been together for more than 9 years since we met at York College in the mid 90's. We have always taken great care in keeping the lines of communication open all the way back to our first date. One of the topics we talked a lot about then was cheating which lead to a talk about an episode of friends where Ross puts together a list of people he is aloud to sleep with without getting in trouble. We both set up our list and the funny thing is we both have 40 somethings as out number one. Her's is self proclaimed "aging alternative icon" Henry Rollins, and I can totally see why. I will give my number one at a later date, but I am posting today to announce the first change to the list in more than two years. Coming in at number 5 is Lauren Jackson bumping fellow athletes Misty May, and Kerri Walsh off of the list. I know having two people in one spot is against the spirit of the list but they are a package deal.
Jackson has so much going for her, not the least of which is that she is an Aussie born and raised women, and as should be evident from my profile and my posts I am in love with all things Australian. Many men would be intimidated by a woman who is 4 inches taller than him, but when I see Lauren Jackson running up and down the court in her bottle green Aussie Olympic team, or Sacramento WNBA uniforms, I see the type of woman that make men want to take chisel to marble. Statuesque is a great way to describe Jackson, who at 6-5 has a long and lean body, but is still amazingly feminine. She has wonderful facial features, and fiery intense eyes, off set by her blond locks, making her look like a model. Add to that a figure to die for and you get one hell of an example of how stunning women are. All of this, plus the ability to fight for a rebound, shoot and pass, lead me to say "that's good work out of you" Lauren Jackson. Welcome to the list.
